Nuggets' Chandler (shoulder) out for next three games wire reports

DENVER -- The Denver Nuggets will be without forward Wilson Chandler on Saturday night when Denver goes for its 15th straight victory at home against the Kings.

Chandler and point guard Ty Lawson were injured in the Nuggets' 114-104 win at Oklahoma City on Tuesday night. Chandler separated his left shoulder and Lawson, who sat out Thursday night against the 76ers, bruised his right heel.

Chandler said Thursday his shoulder felt better but added he would sit out Denver's next two games, after he too was sidelined for the Sixers contest. He hopes to return March 27 against San Antonio.

Lawson leads the Nuggets with a 16.9-point scoring average. Chandler is averaging 11.8 points and five rebounds.
